A Warm Cup of Cocoa

With winter upon us, a warm cup of cocoa sounds good. Tracy at Growing Pains Scrapped came out with a great kit called A Warm Cup of Cocoa. It's a beautiful kit full of warm chocolate colors!

This one is of a cafe we visited while in the mountains. We found it online so we weren't sure what we were getting into, but the food was very good. It was all organic. It was kind of a preppy place, but very nice.

Stop by and pick up this kit, you are going to love it!

Forever Romance by Scraps of Ellay

I got my hands on this great kit by Scraps of Ellay, it's called Forever Romance. I love this kit, the colors are perfect for most pages, and the elements in the kit are so cute. It is perfect to use for vintage pages, but can also be used for other pages.

Of course I'm still working on Mom & Dad's 50th Wedding Anniversary album, so that is what I used it for.
